IARC’s Egg Donation Information Now in a Webinar Format!

Be Informed! In hopes of making the lengthy screening process more user-friendly and convenient, IARC will now begin the egg donation screening with a short webinar. The first webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, August 20 at 10 a.m. Central Standard Time. Subsequent webinars will follow.

Each webinar will be directed at prospective donors and young women that are interested in learning about the program. Interested women can expect to learn about the following:

· How to become an egg donor (the screening process, requirements, etc.)
· The timeline
· Reimbursement for expenses

As each webinar is strictly a learning experience, a commitment to become a donor is not required. Women will be directed to the IARC website to continue the application process if they are interested. Each presentation is easy to attend (all you need is an Internet connection and a phone line) and FREE for participants.

To register for the webinars, go to www.fertilityhelp.webex.com or click on the button on the right-hand side of www.surrogates-eggdonors.com. There are numerous webinars, so women can sign up for the day that fits in their schedule.

Estate Planning for Surrogates Webinar

Tuesday, August 17 is going to be ground-breaking for IARC because Attorney Steve Snyder is going to host our very first Surrogate webinar! You’re invited to listen in to our webinar that focuses on estate planning and how it relates to surrogacy.

Everyone should have some sort of estate plan in effect for his or her personal benefit and the welfare of their family, but there are so many possible outcomes to a surrogacy case that planning for the future becomes exponentially more important if you’re an active surrogate, past surrogate or even thinking about becoming a surrogate. Who would make the medical decisions for an incapacitated surrogate (Heaven forbid!) if something unfortunate happens during the pregnancy? What right do the intended parents have if the surrogate no longer has control over her situation?

Learn all those answers in our webinar on Tuesday, August 17 at 8:30pm CST. Webinars are easy to use (you’ll need a link to the website and a phone number in order to dial in and hear Steve speak) and you never have to worry about leaving your home.

You’ll need to register for the webinar prior to attending. To do so, please go to http://fertilityhelp.webex.com and find the Estate Planning for Surrogates webinar. You’ll need to enter your name, email address and phone number. You’ll receive an email that will confirm your registration and will direct you in how to participate.

If you have any questions, please let Lindsay know by emailing her at lindsay@iarc-usa.com or calling 763-201-1422. Recruit your friends and share this information with anyone as knowledge is power!

Missed the Estate Planning Webinar? No Problem.

You have a chance to view the presentation in its entirety here. IARC’s director, Steve Snyder, delivered an informative webinar about estate planning and why it’s an integral to surrogates on Tuesday, August 17. He thoroughly covered two topics:

1. What exactly is estate planning?
2. Why is it important for surrogates especially?

Every person should have an estate plan that details his or her wishes for the future, so this webinar would be advantageous for anyone. If anything, you’ll impress your colleagues with your knowledge of a fiduciary.
